College Football Playoff Rankings Top 25 Prediction Week 1, November 1

By

What will the College Football Playoff rankings potentially be? It’s the predicted best guess on the first 2022 CFP Top 25.


The College Football rankings are different than the AP poll and Coaches top 25. It’s a different method.

The committee goes step-by-step as it debates No. 25 all the way to 1. It’s a meticulous process taking into account a slew of factors, so even if you don’t agree, understand there was a whole lot of thought behind each spot.

Having been through this down in Grapevine, Texas, and knowing how it all works – eye test, strength of schedule, big wins matter more than tough losses – here’s the best guess on how the committee might see the first top 25.
